Shout-out to Bernie - New Flashcubes CD

Recommended Posts

Just got my copy of "Sportin' Wood", the new Roy Wood tribute album by The Flashcubes the other day, and noticed that Bernie is responsible for art direction of the CD's cover. . . .an excellent collection of covers of 12 songs by one of my all-time favorite artists, and The Flashcubes nail them! An awesome overall package, including a very cool cover, and produced by the 'Cubes drummer Tommy Allen, a member of this board/site. (Unfortunately, it only appears to be available in Japan now.)

Ha. Thanks! Tommy called me with an S.O.S. that they needed to go to press with the cover and even though the band and record label tried a score of ideas nobody was really happy with anything they had seen. I think I had 48 hours (or less) to come up with something. Glad it worked out!

"I LOVE "only Japan""!!!

Good for you! My use of the term "unfortunate" refers to the fact that the CD costs between $53 and $54 US dollars for the CD, including shipping from Japan.

If the CD is released in this country, I'm guessing it will cost maybe $15 - $18......and a lot more people would be able to enjoy the music. It's unfortunate for those people who can't afford the import CD, and the artist (Flashcubes) as well, since they probably won't be able to sell many copies at the current price.
